Longer School Day and Year
To ensure that every student masters each and every standard, we provide students with a longer school day and longer year, including extended periods of English and Math daily.
Curriculum and Development
Engaged in extensive professional development, coaching, and teamwork, our teachers develop units and lessons aligned with quarterly comprehensive assessments (IAs) directly aligned with Massachusetts Frameworks and Roxbury Prep curricula. These assessments and supporting materials form the base for the data-driven instructional model that has greatly enhanced student achievement.
Our students regularly meet with our Principal during Morning Circle, a community meeting that includes topical lessons, presentations by academic classes, and Enrichment or athletics. Families and friends are always welcome to join in this celebration of our mission and culture of achievement.
Athletics and Enrichment
Many students stay after the extended school day to attend tutoring or after school clubs. Throughout the school year, students go on several field trips, including cultural and enrichment visits to Blue Hills Reservation, Boston Bowl, and Canobie Lake. Every year, the eighth grade class goes on a special four-day field trip to Washington, D.C.
